We stayed at this camp for 2 nights at the end of our safari and we wish we could have stayed longer. The camp owner, Chris, is very welcoming and accomodating. The tents are beautiful, with the wooden doors, it feels more like you're staying in a room than a tent. The staff are all very kind and always smiling. The meals prepared at the camp are fabulous. It was nice that Chris joined us for the evening meals. He really enjoys the company of visiting travellers and you can tell that he wants his guests to enjoy their stay.
Chris also works very closely with the local Masai community and is committed to giving back to the community throught his organization, the African Roots Foundation. The foundation has provided the commnity with clean drinking water and are almost finished with a beautiful new community centre.
A great place to stay, we would definitely return!
